The 25 Mirage is perhaps the ideal small cruising power-boat.
This hull has been evolved from Windy and Draco’s early brilliance in developing exceptionally fine-handling sea hulls, with style and panache.
Regarded by many as the benchmark hull at this length, the Mirage is built to the same exacting standards as the larger performance yachts from the Windy range, meaning that the residual value of the Windy marque is sustained, and that the working life of these boats is far longer than the average.
This example has the 5-cylinder 190hp D3 from Volvo, with common-rail technology and great torque for relaxed cruising and improved fuel economy.
Windy are a product of traditional craftsmanship, enhanced with the aid of modern technology. The latest technological innovation is the Wintec hull concept, which gives improved performance, greater strength and reduced noise throughout the vessel.
The hull is reinforced with advanced multi axial glass fibre matting and Divinycell. This allows a reduction in the boats weight of up to 20% whilst offering noticeably improved stability.
All the Windy models are CE-labelled. This means that Windy meets all the requirements laid down for quality control documentation and product liability within the EU. In the process of obtaining approval, the company has also introduced new methodologies construction principals and more advanced construction production equipment, resulting in more cost–effective and quality oriented processes in–house. But above all, Windy is a “Boat Builder” and not a manufacturer of boats, a philosophy which characterizes their production staff and all those within their distribution network.
